If you were injured at work, you should talk to a workers comp atty before returning to work. If the injury wasnt work related, you should talk with an employment rights atty to see if they have a right to fire you under these circumstances or not under state and federal laws.
You need counsel for (a) a potential personal injur suit/sorker's comp claim and (b) employment issues. You do not say anything about how your foot was hurt.
Good luck to you.
In no way am I offering you legal advice, and in no way has my comment created an attorney-client relationship. You are not to rely upon my note above in any way, but insted need to sit down with counsel and share all relevant facts before receiving fully-informed legal advice. If you want to be completely sure of your rights, you must sit down with an experienced criminal defense attorney to be fully aware of your rights.
You need to consult an attorney to at a minimum protect your rights with regard to your employer and any work comp benefits you may have. You may also have a claim for injury depending on how and where you were injured.

Not to just be repetitive, but you should really consult with a local employment & labor law attorney to explain everything in more detail. It's possible that the decision to terminate you could be unlawful, but that's something an attorney would need additional information to determine.
